Rhino's marketing of the limited edition Europe 72 boxset reminds me of the latest offering from Samuel Colt. They've been making Uncle Sam's .45 caliber pistols for 100 years. Some of the brand new ones are stamped "1911-2011" in gold. The first one sold on an auction site for more than $85K but the original MSRP was nowhere near that much.

David Crosby loves these pistols. He got busted three times, for carrying one without a permit. It wouldn't shock me if a wealthy rock star paid the big bucks for a new toy...
